O Clavis David – O Key of David

O Come, Key of David and open our hearts

O Come, Key of David and open our hearts

O Key of David and scepter of the house of Israel, you open and no one can close; you close and no one can open. O come and bring captives out of the prison house, those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death.

– source of translation unknown

 

O Key of David, Come!

O Key of David, Come!
